DNA BreathingUncategorised

DNA Breathing Application Note Now Online

DNA breathing, also known as fraying, describes the spontaneous local conformational transitions occurring within double-stranded DNA (dsDNA). Due to the transient and spontaneous nature of this process, the study of real-time DNA breathing transitions at the single-molecule level requires the use of highly sensitive experimentation technologies. Using LUMICKS’ high-resolution optical tweezers, small and transient DNA…
